Sea Shepherd and Greenpeace are two different organizations.
Sea Shepherd is not a Greenpeace ship. Steve Irwin is a Sea Sheperd ship, not a Greenpeace one. The two groups don't work together much. Sea Shepherd was formed because Greenpeace was too soft for Paul Watson who then founded Sea Shepherd. Sea Shepherd probably wouldn't be too offended by the term pirate, Greenpeace would be.

Thank you for the clarification!

Here is more interesting footage of Greenpeace "eco-terrorists" sabotaging lawfully captured and ranched Bluefin Tuna off of Malta. I'm not sure Jer would approve of this criminal activity...

You mean to say that there are some forms of criminal activity that Jerry didn't approve of? WWJAO?

Exactly right. The Sea Sheperds were founded by people who didn't think that Greeenpeace was militant enough. You can't compare the Sierra Club with those radical Earth First sabateurs in northern California either.

The Weather Underground was created after a split in the leadership of the SDS. The Bill Ayers faction took up arms and declared war on the US Government; yet 99% of the anti-Vietnam War protesters didn't become terrorists.

The French blew up the Rainbow Warrior many years ago and killed the cook in doing it. The new Sea Sheperds vessel is named in honor of TV game show host, Bob Barker...
